At the Feet if Jesus {Book Review}

At-the-Feet-of-Jesus-252x380

At the Feet of Jesus~Joanna Weaver

About the book

You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.


Intimacy with God-to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted.


For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver's beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and "Going Deeper" sidebars are also woven throughout.

Discover for yourself the riches that come from spending a portion of each day alone with God. At the feet of Jesus-where true life begins!
Includes a unique One-Year Bible Reading Guide.

My Thoughts

At the Feet of Jesus is a wonderful daily devotional that goes through the entire year.  I have read several devotions this year and this is one I am truly enjoying. It is meaty and thought provoking. Leading me closer to Jesus. Joanna Weaver writes in such a way that seem to be for me personally. 

I have been on a journey this year like I never have before. I have been seeking Jesus (or perhaps He has been seeking me). I have been reading my Bible each day and am almost through the Old Testament. God is changing me. In ways I would never have imagined. At the Feet of Jesus is helping me to dig deeper into my relationship with Jesus. 

Each daily devotion is taken from a Bible verse that is listed at the top of the page. There is a Bible passage to read each day as well as a question to reflect upon. 

The devotions in At the Feet of Jesus are taken from Joanna’s previous books Having  Mary Heart in A Martha World, Having a Mary Spirit and Lazarus Awakening. She has also added some previously unpublished writings called Outtakes.  In addition there is also a section each month entitled: Going Deeper

At the end of the book there is a unique Bible reading plan where you read a portion of the Old and New Testament each day. I am looking forward to reading the Bible with this reading plan when I finish my current Bible reading.

At the Feet of Jesus would make a wonderful gift and is a beautiful padded hardback.
